Chelsea go for Lokomotiv Moscow's Ivanovic, Bilyaletdinov

Chelsea are set to bid big for Lokomotiv Moscow pair Branislav Ivanovic and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is said to be lining up a £25million double swoop for Ivanovic and Bilyaletdinov, who played in both of Russia's recent Euro 2008 qualifiers against England.

Serb star Ivanovic is a defender and may finally solve the Blues' long-standing problems at right back after their unsuccessful pursuit of Sevilla's Brazilian star Daniel Alves this summer.
